Coinciding with her current solo exhibition Ever now showing at Artereal Gallery, Simone Douglas will also have three works included in the Art Gallery of New South Wales' upcoming exhibition Photography and Place: approaches to Australian landscape photography 1970's till now which runs from 17 March - 29 May 2011.
Curated by Judy Annear, the exhibition is an exploration of the idea of place, as seen in Australian landscape photography of the 1970s and more recent work.
The Art Gallery of New South Wales describes the exhibition:
"Unlike politically and conceptually informed landscape photography in Australia in the 1970s, which was a tentative exploration of the idea of place and reclamation, some recent photographic work can be seen to explore the idea of place in dynamic relation to culture, despite the specificities of location.
This exhibition looks at the earlier work and compares and contrasts intention and effect in relation to more recent photography and examines works that present very specific views of locations and what that location or place can be taken to represent. Includes 18 artists from Jon Rhodes, Lynn Silverman, Simryn Gill, Ricky Maynard, Rosemary Laing to Paul Ogier."
